    Dear Cynthia,

    Shaun and I were so saddened to hear about Tony’s passing.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    I will forever have such fond memories of Tony who welcomed me so warmly when I first moved to Castlemaine.
    I loved his passion and knowledge of art and the years we went to the Art Festival.

    Sending our love from Vancouver, Ania and Shaun Cox

    Cherished friend of Julie, Gary and Annie.
    He was such a big part of our lives.
    His love of art, history and especially PARIS was infectious, we learned a lot from him.
    Our lives are richer from having his friendship for so many years.

    I got to know Tony when I walked in the gardens, he would always stop for a chat about anything and everything. Will miss those talks.

    Very sad to hear of Tony’s passing. I thought things had gone quiet on his FaceBook page and enjoyed his many posts. I always appreciated Tony’s encouragement when I was on Council (someone who really appreciated the theatrics of the Council Chamber). I’ll miss not passing him by, and saying hello, on his walks in the Botanic Gardens.
    Sincere condolences to Cynthia and family.
